If you've read my blog, you'll know that I adore the FAB Aussie designers, Friend of Mine. Their classic silhouettes always catch my eye, which is why I had to try on these numbers.

After work, I visited Katsu, which has been serving authentic Japanese just outside of Chicago for over a decade. We got the sushi Omakase (chef’s selection), which was hard to eat! It was too beautiful to destroy :)

all good things

…must come to an end
My last day on the island (outside of Waimea Falls), but scenically the most beautiful.
  This last photo journal includes our journey through the Kauloa Ranch, which may look familiar, as many movies (Jurassic Park, 50 First Dates) and shows have been shot here


they said when it rains, the water comes down the cliffs and become little waterfalls <3

north shore and more

more coastal driving means more shrimp truckin’
the Dole plantation (established in 1900) was an amazing stop along the historic Wahiawa Town with many fresh fruits (think pineapples, coconuts, mangos) for sale.
I choose some ripe mangos, while my bf had something similar to the Dole Whip, consisting of cold ice cream and freshly diced pineapples - making for a simply delightful treat :)
 [ Finally made it to the North Shore ]
We were told that we had to stop by Matsumoto: one of many shaved ice places throughout the Hawaii, but oftentimes referred to as the best <3
